How Much VS721 and Algae Strip do I need?


Greg Hastie asked:


I can’t find any information regarding how much surface area Algae Strip and VS721 Bottom Coat should cover on average to know how much to purchase. Can you provide this information.


For your convenience, I’ve highlighted the hyperlinks. Click on the hyperlink to get more information about the selected product.

Coverage on VS721 is about 400 sq ft and you need 2 coats so one bottle will do about a 24 ft boat. The amount of Algae Strip is dependant on the amount and type and age of the growth plus the size of the boat. Barnacles will require much more product to remove than algae and heavy old growth will require more than fresh light growth or stains. One bottle should be enough to remove light growth from a 20 to 25 ft boat. Barnacles could take 3 to 4 bottles for the same size boat.

Thanks for your question
